Chris Broadfoot

Hello! I’m Chris.

I’m a software engineer, currently working on the developer relations team at Google. I work on the Go and the Cloud teams there.

I’m passionate about building software and creating great platforms and tools for current and budding programmers.


I grew up in Sydney, Australia, and studied there at the University of New South Wales.

From 2010-2015, I worked on the Google Maps developer platform at Google Australia. After that, I moved to San Francisco to work on the Go programming language and its support on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

I’m not very active on social media anymore.

Groovy articles

I wrote a couple posts back in 2008 about the Groovy programming language. I’ve archived them, since they are still kind of popular.
